Jeremy Renner recently sat down with Collider for an interview. He talked a bit about Marvel’s The Avengers and the possibility of a Hawkeye solo movie. Check out the full interview HERE and read some excerpts below.
Here is what Renner had to say about his character and what he thought about starring in Thor:
"It’s actually difficult because there’s not a lot to do. In Thor, I had to just stand in a bucket and hold my bow and arrow. What’s the character? I have no idea. I was thrown into that very quickly, so it was like, “Am I trapping myself?” It’s a little strange. I don’t know if it’s a good thing. I don’t think I’d go about it, normally, that way. It’s certainly a different way to go about taking on a role."
Renner talked a bit about whether he would like to make a Hawkeye solo movie:
"I don’t know. There are a lot of variables in that one. Would they want to make one? What would it be about? There are a lot of things. I suppose, if they all align, then it could be interesting ‘cause I certainly like the character. But, I don’t know what the future holds."
He then talked a bit about what it’s like to be one of The Avengers:
"It’s great. It’s an amazing cast, and I wish I got to do more with them. But, I had fun with the people I did get to work with."
Here is his response to whether he felt that The Avengers had an ensemble movie feel:
"Oh, yeah. It’s huge. Look at how many characters are in that thing. It was the ultimate challenge for Joss Whedon, who knows that universe so well. There was no one better to write it. He was so challenged, to write and direct that thing. I don’t know how you put that many characters in a movie like that. It’s immense. But, with that, you pass the baton. You get to work with very few of them ‘cause everybody’s got their own thing going on. Someone’s in the air, flying around. I’m on the ground, shooting a bow and arrow. There are a lot of things happening. I have no idea what that movie looks like. Zero idea. Most of the time, I have a good idea of how it’s going to turn out because I’ve seen so much of it, but I have no idea. I feel like I might be an extra in it. I’m not sure."
I am looking forward to seeing The Avengers and I would not mind seeing Hawkeye in a movie of his own. What are your thoughts?
